HyperSynth HyperSID (hardware)

HyperSynth has released version 1.2 (including HW unit OS) of HyperSID, a subtractive synthesizer with all the C64 SID chip hardware capabilities besides many new software based features.

OS v1.2 has been completely redesigned and some long standing issues have been fixed. In this release all the processing tasks are handled by HW unit. The big flaw in the previous versions was the low update rate of modulation sources but now the HW unit is capable of filling SID registers with update rates up to 28000 Hz.

The VSTi plug-in represents a step forward in controlling the new LFO and envelope modules with great preciseness and resolution up to 14 bit for each parameter plus an ultra fast arpeggiator module to emulate C64 like sound. Due to many requests, HyperSynth has published “HyperSID MIDI CC-NRPN Chart” in the website as a document, and suggests that “it’s time for Mac users to start building their own control surface”.

Changes in HyperSID v1.2

  • New optimized and improved OS for HW unit with 28000Hz update rate on SID register.
  • High resolution HW based LFO, ENV and arpeggiator.
  • 2x faster startup for software plugin.
  • Several bug fixes and lots more.
